Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
This timeline addresses the timeline of the U.S. from Ponce de Leon's discovery of what is now Florida in 1513 to 2006 when the U.S. population reached 300 million. The book is divided into sections rather than chapters. Each section covers a definitive historical period, and includes relevant facts of the era and cartoon-like illustrations. The first section is aptly titled, "Birth of a Nation," and is followed by subsequent time periods which show the date when each of the fifty states obtained statehood. An activity, "Build Your Own Timeline," provides instructions for making a timeline of the history of the reader's home state beginning with the date it became a state. A glossary defines relevant terms. "To Learn More" lists books and Internet sites which provide more information on the subject. An index allows easy navigation through the text. The book is part of the "An Illustrated Timeline" Series which includes: An Illustrated Timeline of Inventions and Inventors, An Illustrated Timeline of Space Exploration, An Illustrated Timeline of Dinosaurs, An Illustrated Timeline of Transportation, and An Illustrated Timeline of U.S. Presidents. This series provides excellent supplemental information to a history curriculum. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
